Chewy Chocolate Cookies

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Love2Eat

We've been making these chewy morsels since I was a kid. They cool to a very flat cookie that looks like it should be crisp, but isn't. I really don't think you should use anything but butter, but that's just my opinion! You can add 1 cup of chopped walnuts if you'd like, too.

These cookies were GROSS. I don't know why but mine turned out NOTHING like the picture or description. I used margarine because I didn't have butter but everything else I followed EXACTLY. The dough was very dry and the cookies were like powder when cooked. I kept lessening the time until I was only cooking them 3 minutes and they were STILL dried out. It was like eating plain cocoa and flour. They never puffed or flattened either so I have NO idea what happened. Very disappointing.
